New York cop shot in head in “unprovoked attack”

"Police be killing and saying an inmate killed them".

Last year, 66 law enforcement officers were shot dead in the country, up more than 50 percent from the previous year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. She was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, police said.

The man who assassinated a NYPD officer just hours after the Independence Day holiday, and was later fatally shot by officials, previously assaulted police and had an extensive criminal record, according to reports.

"Our goal has always been to work with the community, as partners, to help solve and deter crimes and there are folks out there - the police haters - that condone, advocate and celebrate violence against police", he added. She had three children, including a set of twins.

As WNYC reports, the 48-year old officer was in her patrol auto in the Bronx when a man suddenly started shooting. She was a 12-year police veteran.

The suspect fired through the window of the vehicle and struck the officer in the head.

Officer Miosotis Familia was at the end of her shift when she was struck. Photos posted by Bonds reportedly matched a police mugshot of the ex-convict. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot dead in their marked vehicle by gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley in an apparent revenge attack for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

A New York Police Department officer was killed Wednesday morning after a suspect shot her in the face while she sat in her vehicle.

'The officer was assigned to a mobile command post when a suspect fired through the vehicle's window, striking her in the head. "My partner's shot! Hurry up central!" "My partner's shot! Hurry up central!" Her death was described by NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill as an "unprovoked attack" and an assassination.

The attack happened in the Bronx around 12:30 a.m.

Familia's partner was not injured in the attack. When he drew his revolver on them, the officers responded with lethal force, shooting and killing the suspect before he had the chance to fire.

Police identified him as 34-year-old Alexander Bonds.

A revolver was recovered at the scene but there is no confirmation yet if it was the weapon used in the female officer's murder. Other officers spotted the suspect and began chasing him. As "John Bonds", he served seven years in prison for a Syracuse robbery.

Police Sgt. Brendan Ryan says police are unaware of any connection between Bonds and Familia. "Our understanding is she was filling out her memo book and he walked out and fired one round", the source said. It is not clear who's bullet hit the bystander. That person has been listed in stable condition.

Police say there are no oustanding suspects and that this investigation is ongoing.
